I have two questions to ask;

1) I hold an M.Sc in Project Management from the National University of Singapore which I obtained in 2008. I also recently earned my PMP certification in May 2016.
I would like to ask if I could still earn PDU's from the M.Sc program which I got before I became a PMP under Category B - Continuing Education.

2) I am preparing a presentation titled "Project Management Fundamentals for Interior Design Practitioners" to be delivered as a seminar at a major Interior Design Expo and Exhibition in my country in July 2016.

I would like to also ask if I could earn PDU's by delivering this presentation under Category D - Creating new project management knowledge.

Thank you very much

Hello Uyi ,

(1) You cannot claim any PDUs for courses you earned before you became a PMP. PDUs can only be earned after you become certified.

(2) Absolutely! Yes on both: Every hour that you spend in preparing and delivering this presentation will earn you one PDU.
Until Next Time,
